Abstract:

In Newport, Kentucky, Kennedy sits at a dining table with Mrs. Stiles, Mrs. Shay, and Mrs. Wagner, each of whom lost a son to war. The crew sets up, Kennedy confirms the women's names and hometowns, and asks the director how they should start. To begin the political spot itself, Kennedy introduces himself, then the three women, explaining that each lost a son to war. Each woman speaks briefly about her son's military service and death. Kennedy states his own brother died in service, and that peace is a central concern of the 1960s. Khrushchev is unstable and the Chinese Communists have dedicated themselves to destruction of the U.S., believing that war is the way to communize the world. The best way to maintain peace is to be strong and to make sure that lines of commitment are clearly drawn and known. He cites examples of Hitler and North Korea. He looks with some optimism at the chances of maintaining peace in the sixties. If elected, he will devote all his energies to that. "We've had enough war." The women concur; Mrs. Stiles says she has three grown grandsons and wouldn't want anything to happen to them. Kennedy is hopeful that if the U.S. can keep its strength and nerves and persevere, the country can remain at peace. "Senator John Kennedy with words to remember on election day. A man who knows the suffering of war but is dedicated to peace ... For new American leadership in the sixties, vote for John F. Kennedy for president"--Voice over.
